245 rival on top and 225 RS3 on bottom, mounted on identical spec rims.

Rear fitment, had to remove the 3mm spacer, tires should tuck up under fender.

Front fitment.

A bit shinier than what they looked on the website.

Took the car for a short drive around the block, nothing was rubbing but didn't get aggressive. And then the gas company tore up part of the back alley, they should be done in a couple of weeks.

Brake dust should have them matte bronze in no time, right?

Well evidently Photobucket is being greedy and wants money to host, so my picture links are broken until I find a solution.

Neither was Photobucket 8 years ago when I signed up.

Thanks for the Flickr recommendation, but I may look into setting up my own site to host the photos and not have to deal with this again. This is going to be a huge pain to fix.

Well it was bound to happen eventually...
Drove the car to work today to give the car a bit of a shakedown before lapping on Sunday. Went to pass a car doing 80kph on the Anthony Henday, accelerated in 5th and zoom, lots of revs and not much go. Clutch is slipping, I did adjust the clutch pedal engagement point and may have over adjusted but I'm not holding my breath.
Seems fine in the lower gears but 4th and 5th are slippy. I'll un-adjust the clutch pedal and see if it gets better. If not I'll be missing lapping on Sunday. :cry:

Well the clutch was worn out. I adjusted the clutch master rod, arm?, too far and blocked off the clutch master reservoir, so when the fluid heated up by being close to a turbo it'd expand and lift pressure on the clutch and wear prematurely.
So my 6 speed swap was moved up in the timetable to go along with the new clutch.
Just got the car back together last night, just need to clean up all the tools from under the car and get it off the jack stands. Should be going for a test drive tonight, then break in the clutch over the next 2 weeks or so and hopefully can hit the lapping day on Sept 17?

New clutch stuff is from Flyin' Miata and I got a used 6 speed from Reg's Auto Wreckers in Lacombe.

Isn't Reg's the same place the engine came from? Same car?

Same place but not from the same car.
